Hands-On Cove Park is a programme of creative opportunities for children, young people and families. In recent weeks the programme has gone online – as HOCP at Home – and we have been commissioning weekly videos from former Cove Park residents.

We would like to compliment this by offering our audiences creative activities that can be downloaded from our website in the form of activity sheets or packs. The sheets or packs should encourage children (aged 8+) to make use of everyday things in their homes to undertake creative activities. We are looking for ideas that are low tech and offer an alternative to the many on-line opportunities that currently exist. We are thinking about activities that can be developed indoors or outdoors and can be done alone or with others at home. We are open to suggestions: collating, drawing, eating, exploring, imagining, making or playing.

We will commission at least five artists to progress a single activity sheet or larger activity pack. Our aim is to have this material available from late June 2020.

By way of application please submit your CV and no more than one side of A4 detailing your idea/s and a draft budget (which we suggest you calculate in terms of Scottish Artist Union’s daily rates and materials).

If you have any questions please email: vanessa.paynton@covepark.org.

The deadline for submission is 25 May 2020 and we will reply to all interested parties by Monday 1 June 2020.
